Video: No Squat Design? "On my
Street Machine Gte recumbent, there is a sticker which says
but this technology is not paying off for me at least. Here you see how I have to squat every day for my bike Maya. I go to work on Maya
and when I reach home in the evenings and ‘m so tired, Maya gets all over me and wants to have a ride on my shoulder."

Gekko fx review: The leading amerikan recumbent magzine bentrideronline.com
has reviewd our new fast folding trike Gekko fx and is impressed:
"The Gekko just feels like a trike that will last many, many years.(...) Of course, what really puts this trike on the map is its fold.
I'll get this out of the way and say that it really does fold in under ten seconds. No matter how many times I folded it, I still got a silly little grin on my face.
It's more than a little bit amazing. (...) I'm very impressed indeed."
